Outdoor movie screening on Saturday for National HIV Testing Day

Sounds like a good event:
Five local churches and five AIDS service organizations are coming together to put on an event to commemorate National HIV Testing Day.

1 in 20 people in DC is living with HIV. How can we help end this epidemic?

This event is an Outdoor Movie Screening of "The Other City" - a powerful documentary about the HIV epidemic here in DC.

If you have yet to see it or want to encourage your friends/family to learn more about HIV in DC, come see this film.

 What: Outdoor Screening of "The Other City"
When: Saturday, June 25th; Field opens at 8PM; movie starts at sundown
Where: Harriet Tubman Elementary School Field; 3101 13th St. NW (across from Wonderland)
Other Deets: Free HIV testing and music before the film
Why: Because we want to build relationships with one another around this very important social justice issue.

I hope people take advantage and get tested. Knowing your status and your partner's status can help prevent new infections. But we are still in need of a cure for the millions currently living with HIV. Please support re:solve AIDS. The re:solve AIDS project is raising money to get a promising AIDS vaccine through human testing so that it can be produced and made available to everyone who needs it.

The Gup said... not to take away from this post, but last night (sunday) they played a movie too. Do you know where a schedule of future movies might be?
